Carbohydrate reserves constitute the major part of edible portion of the plants. Latest researches in major crops like wheat, rice, maize, barley, potato, sugarcane, sugarbeet, Jerusalem artichoke, chicory and carbohydrates in trees have been included in this book. The book will be of great value to the basic plant biochemists, molecular biologists, biotechnologists, and genetic crop engineers and to the agricultural scientists working in different disciplines related to crop productivity. This compilation may act as a medium to initiate discussions among these scientists leading to new researches in the area of crop productivity and reserve carbohydrate metabolism.Similar results were reported when a yeast-derived invertase gene was expressed in transgenic potato tubers [84]. Cytosolic ... Fructose is also a product of the invertase reaction, but does not accumulate in transgenic tubers. ... Each of these examples show that glucose and fructose affect metabolism differently inanbsp;...
